WordPress Sites Under Attack

Ok, with what happened back in April, all of the things out there that SCREAM use good password rules, you’d think that people would learn.  But because maybe one or two people if not more used a ‘junk’ password, whole servers were infected.

Come on people, when are you going to learn, when you’ve got something online, you’ve GOT to use good passwords.

For the full story on the attacks, head on over to SC Magazine and read the article by Angela Moscaritolo;

In addition to WordPress blogs, websites created with other PHP-based platforms, including the Zen Cart eCommerce solution, were affected by the attacks, Regina Smola, co-founder of WPSecurityLock, a provider of WordPress security services, told SCMagazineUS.com on Tuesday.

Attackers injected malicious JavaScript into the sites, causing visitors to be redirected to scareware domains that attempted to trick users into installing a virus, she said.

Tens of thousands of legitimate sites are believed to be affected.
